UNH Manchester students in both the business and computer information systems programs have the unique opportunity to finish their last year of studies with a class to prepare them for a career after graduation. Both the Business Senior Seminar and the CIS Internship classes combine course content with an internship. The goals of both courses are integration and application of the program material they’ve learned over the span of their degrees and readiness for their job search.

The nuts and bolts of career exploration are integrated into the classes to serve as a launching pad for students as they transition, in many cases, from student to professional. Workshops in resume writing and interviewing are supported by guest professionals and alumni to provide feedback and to simulate real-life interviewing situations.

Also included in career preparation are topics such as networking, appropriate attire, professional correspondence such as cover letters and thank you notes and informational interviewing. Students are coached on making the most of a job fair — including preparing their “elevator speech” or introduction to employers. The NHCUC Career Fair serves as their application of these skills. Understanding benefits and negotiating salary are also covered as are tips for fitting into the culture of a new environment.
